points memo. now we've heard a lot of happy talk from the obama administration about how the economy is picking up, and today's anemic job numbers paint a far gloomier picture. one of the unemployment rate fell to 9%, this is merely cosmetic. as economists noted today, the drop is mostly due to a slow down in layoffs, not any significant pick up in hiring. payrolls added only 36,000 employees nationwide. to give you a cents of how bad this is, economists say in order to makeup for the 7.7 million jobs lost, we need to add 214,000 jobs a month. not 36,000. for next three years. think of it another way according to forbes magazine check this out. the u.s. labor market started 2011 with half a million jobs, fewer than it had 11 years ago. the labor force has grown since then by nearly 11 million workers. it's staggering. the president's economic plan, the bailouts, more big government stuff. failed. but don't worry. john mccain thinks the president is getting the message. >> i think it's clear that the president is really to a more sen trift position which i think makes it easier for to

officials today. and president obama talked of a transition that begins now. he spoke after meeting with canadian prime minister stephen harper at the white house. >> i believe that president mubarak care bses history country, he is crowd but he is also a patriot. and what i have suggested to him is that he needs to consult with those who are around him in his government. he needs to listen to what's being voiced by the egyptian people. and make a judgement about a pathway forward that is orderly. but that is meaningful and serious can. and i believe that he's already said that he's to the going to run for re-election. this is somebody whose's been in power for a very long time in egypt. having made that psychological break, that decision that he will not be running again, i think the most important for him to ask himself, for the egyptian government to ask itself as well as the opposition to ask itself is how do we make that transition effective, and lasting and legitimate. and as i said before, that's not a decision ultimately the united states makes or any country outside of egyp
. >> this is sunday night at 8:00 on c-span. >> president obama previews the speech that he will give next week to the u.s. chamber of commerce, and he calls on businesses to hire workers. there is a criticism of his economic policies, that have been said to create unsustainable deficits. >> this week, we were told that we were moving in the right direction but we need to get there more quickly. the bipartisan tax cuts that we passed in december will add to job creation and economic growth. this is making the paychecks of americans will larger, and helping to invest. but the true measure of progress is that every american who wants to have a job can find a job. people in this country can still achieve the american dream. this is the process. in the global economy, the newest industries will take root and the strongest commitment to research and technology, this will help with -- we have to innovate more than the rest of the world. students and researchers are leading the way on innovation and they are taking up the challenge all across the country. if you focus on tackling the biggest obstacles
living. [applause] tavis: president obama, of course, last week in the state of the union address talking about the need for american innovation. we begin our look at the state of the u.s. technology with gary shapiro president and c.e.o. of the consumer electronic association and the driving force behind the annual consumer technology showcase known as the c.e.s. he's also author of the new text "the comeback. how innovation will restore the american dream." good to have you then the program. >> thank you for having me. tavis: did you and president opaw ma coordinate this, your book about "the comeback" and his speech, did you coordinate this? >> i was overwhelmed with people noting the similarities, i'm fortunate in the timing. but the message is our nation is in trouble and our secret sauce is innovation. tavis: why do we think innovation is the way forward. >> we are in trouble financially, we have three choices, raise taxes, cut spending or grow. i like to focus on growth. there's a lot of talk about the other two. think about who we are as a nation and what we do. most of us are imm
pro- government thugs. after talking with president mubarak earlier this week, president obama said this. >> an orderly transition must be meaningful, it must be peaceful, and it must begin now. furthermore, the process must include a broad spectrum of egyptian of voices and opposition parties. it should lead to elections that are free and fair. >> free and fair elections. what are the odds of that happening, charles? >> i think rather good, as long as the army still intact, as long as they're not dragged into one side of the other, it remains a guarantor of the state, an -- market will be gone sooner or later, but it is the one institution that -- mubarak will be gone sooner or later, but it is the one institution that could midwife a transition to elections, parliamentary and presidential. >> mark? >> surveys show that the one institution that is trusted and respected by americans is the military, and that it could be the savior in egypt as well as the hope, perhaps the best hope. democracy is unpredictable. we know that. mark these are wonderfully predictable. -- monarchies are o
us forward. >> he has great credibility. >> what is the view of president obama among the protesters, if you can generalize about how president obama is doing? >> sorry. you can repeat your question again? >> greta: if it's possible, can you tell me, generally wharkts protesters think of what president obama's been doing so far, or not doing? >> i think -- i think having president obama... speaking about this and showing his intention to the problem is a good thing. but too much attention might be not the best move right now, as well. egypt wants to be independent and have their independent choices at the end of the day. any help they can get is great, but they don't want anyone imposed upon themselves -- >> greta: go ahead. >> i think the american administration has been taken by surprise by what has happened in the last 10 days in egypt. there have been mixed signals come from this administration. first, they were hesitant to speak out. then they were pro the youth movement, now i think they are saying again, they're want a smooth, stable transition. so i don't really think that th
in the air. >> okay. richard, many thanks as always. >>> the obama administration may be shifting tactics. speaking from the white house yesterday, president obama suggested that mubarak should consider how history will remember him. >> the key question he should be asking himself is how do i leave a legacy behind where egypti is able to get through this period. my hope is he will end up making the right decision. >> good morning to you, mike. >> good morning. >> president obama described egypt's president as proud, referred to him as a pariot. >> the administration from the president on down has been eager to knock down the perception that they are calling the shots in egypt. it's obviously true the united states is not driving this train. they are sitting and watching events unfold like we all are. this is being driven by the protesters in the central square in cairo. she talks about focusing on the vice president. the newly installed vice president of egypt, and his name is omar suleiman. president mubarak has already said he will not stand for election. he will not put himself forward
and will not leave the presidential palace. president obama stopped short of calling for him to step down saying the transition needs to begin right now. >> the president: the key question he should be asking is how do i leave a legacy behind in which egypt is able to get through this transformative period? my hope is that he will up making the right decision. >> reporter: most of alexandria is calm. soldiers patrol with bayonets fixed on the end of their rifles. neighborhood watches, people walk the streets with sticks and clubs. we hear gunfire occasionally not battles, only warning shots. >> bret: mike tobin, live in al zhan -- alexandria. let's i in our panel. kt mc-- let's begin elliot with where we are and where it may go in coming days. your thoughts? >> i think the army which said this week that they weren't going to fire and didn't, also didn't fire on president mubarak he's still there. they are all still there. the question for the coming days. can the army find a compromise where mubarak stays as president but gives up his powers to vice president suleiman? satisfying the army, satis
: what is the view of president obama among the protesters? if you can generalize about how the protesters feel about how president obama is doing? >> can you repeat your question again? >> greta: if it is possible, can you tell me, generally what the protesters think of what president obama has been doing so far or not doing? >> i think highly of president obama showing his attention to the problem is a good thing. too much attention might be not the best move right now as well. egypt wants to be independent and have their independent choices. any help they can get is great, but they don't want anyone imposed upon them. >> i think the american administration has been taken by surprise by what has happened in the last 10 days in egypt. there has been missed signals coming from the administration. first they were hesitant to speak out. then they were pro the youth movement. now i think they are hesitating again. they want a smooth, stable transition. i didn't think the egyptians or the youth movement is very much interested in what president obama thinks or what the administr
this week, president obama said this. >> an orderly transition must be meaningful, it must be peaceful, and it must begin now. furthermore, the process must include a broad spectrum of egyptian of voices and opposition parties. it should lead to elections that are free and fair. >> free and fair elections. what are the odds of that happening, charles? >> i think a good, as long as the army stays intact, as long as the army's not drag it to one side or the other, remains a guarantor and -- a guarantor of the state. mubarak will be gone sooner or later, but it is the one institution that could midwives the transition period to elections, parliamentary and presidential. >> mark? >> every survey of public opinion in the united states says that one institution that is corrected and respected is the military did they could be the savior of egypt as well. i did it is the best hope. democracy it is unpredictable. we know that. that is why we don't know the outcome. we do hope more than expect. >> nina? >> i am probably butchering this quote from tokyo, so don't write to me if i do -- from tocq
are packed and so on. the more i see the media narrative and leaks from the obama, ab secretary of state clinton how it's about to wrap up and he's a transitional figure, the more i sense desperation on the obama administration, things are not working out the way they want and if you look the at the circumstances the reporter noted in cairo, the demonstrators are still in the square, but mubarak is still in his office, figure out who is winning on that basis. >> neil: an interesting point. and one thing that struck me is this notion, you've raised it before, john, be careful what you wish for, you might get it. i noticed the canadian prime minister, steven harper in that joint presser with president obama, a lot of people missed it, but i caught a line that really got my attention. we are aldrin toward democratic systems, but he went on to say we want that system guided by such values as nonviolence, the rule of law as respected, respect for human rights, including the rights of minorities, religious minorities. was he making a swipe at islamic law based upon they don't do that? >> i thi
obama became president of the united states, he made his inaugural address and said, i want swift, bold action now. to address the needs of the american people. one week and one day after that speech, the house of representatives passed the recovery act. and then it became law in a matter of weeks after that. i tell you this because this was a bold, swift action that put resources out there to meet them at the natiothe imagination and, and san francisco has always been a leader in terms of posing a model that is worthy of national support. so because of his speech, our swift actions, but most of all, because of the sense of community that city officials in san francisco saw here, and because of the ongoing leadership of the tenderloin neighborhood development corp., people's lives will be changed. when you hear speeches and wonder what is that all about? president obama's speech is now being translated into a better life for many more people who live here or receive services here. the recovery act is very important. it is part of a number of things that have been significant for san fra
